FAREWELL TO OREGON.
BY H. A. K.
Fttrewell I ye are changed, ye loved ones of yore,
I must meet your glance in my pathway no more j
A cloud hangs darkly o'er each fair brow,
And the love-lit eye beams coldly now.
We meet no more in the haunts of old,
Where love's rich tones in the car were told
By the rushing stream, where the forest lay,
The voice ot friendship has passed away.
Farewell I I go to the greenwood shades,
Where fountains dance in the forest glades:
Where young leaves whisper a gentle breath
Of love that knowcth no change but death.
I go where the summer breezes siyh,
And songs of peace in the winds sweep by,
To hear the music of harp-strings flung
From waving branches their shades umong.
I go go where the cataract's foam
Sends np its voice through heaven's blue dome ;
Where dew-drops glimmer in the lillv bell ;
Where dark leaves quiver, I go 1 arewell !
I go they will breathe me a welcome there
In the balmy tones of the morning air ;
There is a look of welcome in each bright cyo,
That glances forth from India's sky.

Mrs. C. Stop, Mr. Bull; really, sir, I am
shocked at this indecent behavior, and despise
the brutality that can take such advantage of my
weakness. You know that my Jonathan is away
fighting the savages, or you would never dare
insult me so. If Master Wilkes had struck
yonr boy, for instance .
John Bull Ah! that a where it is. Ilif my
younker 'ad been brought to you along with tho

for 'im, or sent 'im hoff with a flea in 'is hear,

Mrs. C. Well, then, sir, how easily can
your grievances be settled ! Here, take the ap

sure, are not worthy becoming " apples it dis

specimens, and 1 am now gathering so many
millions of them on my southern property, that
can well attord you these two poor rotten.

John Bull, gruffly! No; I arnt. I want to
make a hexample o' that Vilkes, and make me
hample hapology besides.
Mrs. C. Well, sir, 1 never told Master
Wilkes to assault your boy ; although am sorry
to say that your family have behaved very
strangely to ine lately, even sheltering thieves
which you knew were going to rob me. 1 wish
to livo on good terms with all my neighbors,
and therefore regret this little occiirrance, but,
be assured, sir, my Jonathan will some day call
you to account for these insults. You may de
pend on my making an example of Master
Wilke. Will that do?
John Bull , very sulkily I suppose ao.
Mrs. C. Now, boys, listen. I have many
distressing things tc occupy me just now, and
therefore, as you love me, do nothing whatever
to bring me in contact with that rude and over
bearing man. He is a dangerous and sanctimo
nious old hypocrite, who would set my house
on fire for the value of a spool of cotton it it
served his purpose. Master Wilkes, 1 am in
deed very proud of you, and only regret that
you did not bring that wicked boy to me for
punishment But I have promised Mr. Bull to
make an example of you, and therefore I pro
mote you to the head of your class. Now, my
dear boys, you may all have a holiday.

to convince one of the fact that the Southern Con",

Thex and Now. When the question of the
adoption ot tho Constitution was pending, two
distinguished individuals were discussing tho
slavery clause. Ono of them contended that
slavery was " a great moral wrong " the other
that it was " a great moral right." Both are
now candidates on the secesh Stato ticket ono
" to do tho talking, and tho other to see fair
play." Ono is Judgo Wait tho Advertiser's
" gallant war horse" tho other is John F. Mil

opinion oftho latter ; the latter is now an aboli
tionist compared with the former. I ho Judge

The Abolitionists. It is a little singular that
in this State not a word is said Against the Abo
litionists by the neutral and " Union Democrat
ic newspapers. Of courso we do not expect
tho Republicans to say anything disparagingly
wuu respect to a largo and itilluential wing ot
their party, but there is no excuse for thosilereo
or the neutrals, in the northern States the Ab
olitionists are not treated so tenderly. Moun
The fact is, Mr. Democrat, that both Ropubli-
cans and " neutrals ioel moro interested in
watching tho Abolitionists of the South than any
other sort, about these days. As long as you
are not much interested in their perils, why, you
can amuse yourself with tho northern Abolition
Ixconsistexcv op THE Rehelliox. In order
to show what liitle reason tho South had for ro
bellion, nnd how long the Government has been
in its hand, it is only necessary to state that
up to 1801, that section of tho country had
furnished seven out of the thirteen Presidents,
and had twelve out of eighteen terms, or forty
eight years out of the seventy-two since tho
adoption of the Constitution, thus leaving the
Presidential office to bo occupied by Northern
men only twenty-four years, or just one third
of the time. Five of tho Southern Presidents
each held two terms, while no Northern man
has been allowed a re-election. Besides, three
Presidents were M Northern men with Southern
principles," and this, in effect, gives twelve
years more to the South, making in all sixty
years in which they have had almost supreme
control, and leaving but twelve years i:i which
the Government has been administered even
nominally, by Northern Presidents. But during
these twelve years it could be shown that two
hundred and six'y-three thousand slave owners
had a ponderous influence in public affairs, and
in shaping the policy of the Government. So
long as the country was satisfied with this state
of things, the slave-holders, of course did not
complain ; but the moment the people ventured
by perfectly legal and constitutional means, to
elect to the Executive office man who repre
sented tho clearly revealed sentiments of the
majority, thoso slave-holders revolted. Sacra-

A few weeks ago there was a faction in Ore
gon, opposed to the war and but little disguised
in its sympathies with secession. One of its or
gans in commenting on somo of John C. Breck
inridgo's doings, styled him a "pure minded
patriot" Breckinridgo was then in the rebel
army trying to drive the flag of tho Union from
Kontucky soil. Treasonable conspiring was then
tho editor's idea of "pure minded patriotism."
Anoiner oi ineir organs made use, from time
to time, of tho following language i
" Wo sympathize with the South."
" Wo pray that the arms of tho Government
may be paralyzed."
" llo who rejoices at Federal victories Is moro
than a traitor."
Another published " Davis and Beauregard,
the glory of the land." This latter also was the
organ of thoso " Douglas men" who were willing
to thrust embarrassments in the way of conquer
ing the rebellion to make patriotism second to
partyism. Another whose editor belongs to the
reptile species, made it a common pastimo tore
vile the Government ns a "despotism" nnd a
Union not worth preserving by war." Jndividu
als of this faction hissed nt demonstrations of
Union sentiment, when tho great heart of the na
tion was stirred to its depths with righteous in
dignation at tho perpetrators of tho sum of all
villanics secession ; they pointed at our Amer
ican flags with the finger of scorn, calling them
"abolition rngs ;" they prated of "our brethren
in tho South," and with oracular wags of the
head, said they could not be subdued ; complain'd
of the telegraphic dispatches, that nono but Union
victories were allowed to becomo known op

flushed with tho victories of Bull Run and Ball's
Bluff, w hen tho apparent inaction of the army led
them to think their rebel " brothers" were sure .
to win. The traitorous pests were preparing to
be on tho winning side, and without the courage
to leave Oregon (like somo of their faction) and
join themselves to the fortunes of tho Confeder
acy, they strove hard to take Oregon out of tho
Union. They will deny nil that now, but tho
record is made, nnd will stand ngninst them, till
the withering blight of popular condemnation
shall hunt them homo to pandemonium.
Such rampant fellows might have been expect
